Jasmine Thomas to Miss Remainder of the 2022 Season

Uncasville, CT (May 24, 2022) – Connecticut Sun captain, Jasmine Thomas, will miss the rest of the 2022 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in her right knee.


The Sun point guard and defensive juggernaut sustained the injury with 2:10 left on the clock in the first quarter of Sunday’s 92-70 win over the Indiana Fever. Thomas had three points, three assists, and a rebound, before being helped off the court. The Sun has announced that Thomas will have reconstructive surgery on her knee, but no timetable for the surgery or rehabilitation has been given.


“Of course, I’m sad that I won’t be able to continue playing on the court with this special team,” Thomas lamented. “Everyone has been supportive and uplifting, and I’m just preparing mentally and emotionally to attack my recovery. I will continue to be a vocal leader and support my team from the sidelines. They’re incredible and I’m excited about what they’re going to achieve.”


The 5-9 guard from Fairfax, VA. has averaged 9.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.1 steals in 26.0 minutes throughout her career. A player known for her durability, Thomas has played in 358 games, only missing seven games due to overseas responsibilities, rest and a family commitment during her twelve-year professional career in the WNBA. Having played in 222 games for the Sun, Thomas is fifth in Connecticut Sun all-time franchise history and first amongst active players. Her reliability has been a hallmark of her playing career and will continue to be, as she helps coach and support her teammates on the sideline.


“Saddened and disappointed for Jas,” Head Coach and General Manager, Curt Miller remarked. “She has been the epitome of an iron woman throughout her career. We will support her throughout her recovery and continue to lean on her leadership lens from the sideline. We look forward to having her back on the court in the future.”
